When rapper, songwriter and producer Eve appeared on HuffPost Live this week, she was very hopeful about the future of women in rap. She told host Marc Lamont Hill: "There's a whole crop of girls that I think is really dope... I wish there was more though. That's my only problem, I wish there was more females."
Eve also discussed her experiences as a female MC in a male-dominated world, and how she no longer believes that a woman needs a group or a male backer to find fame.
"At the end of the day, talent is talent, and I think these girls can come up on their own. I won't believe that you need a dude to co-sign."
